Dez Bryant is a Dallas Cowboy, ending more than a month of speculation leading to this moment. The Cowboys traded up three spots, with the Patriots, to nab Bryant at No. 24.
There’s no question Bryant was the most talented wide receiver in this draft. He’s arguably one of the top-five most talented players in the draft overall, and well worth the gamble this late in the first round.
Bryant’s “life skills” have been questioned, but he’s a natural pass-catcher that can physically manhandle opponents. He’ll have the support system of Deion Sanders in Dallas — we think thats’ a good thing.
The addition of Bryant makes us wonder about Roy Williams’ future. Williams likely has one year left in Dallas — at most.
UPDATE: The Cowboys gave up the No. 27 and No. 90 pick for the right to move up for Bryant and the No. 119 pick.
